He asks if they’re going to meet Dewey and they say they haven’t seen him. They tell Raylan that Dewey is fair and doesn’t hit them.
He opens the briefcase and offers them some of the money if they offer up some info. The girls share a look and then hand him a cell phone and tell him that Dewey’s number is on speed dial. He hands them a stack of cash and he takes the phone. They are upset when they see it was mostly newsprint.
Raylan tells Dewey that he’s about to get handed a ringer from the Crowes and not the money he was expecting. He tells Dewey that he’s his only friend in the world.
